Joey Dasinger has announced his candidacy for Clarksville City Council in Ward 5 in the November 3rd election. Joey has been a resident of Clarksville since 2013, along with his wife and three children. He is running his campaign on the principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and individual liberty.
Dasinger first ran for City Council in 2016 on the premise that people should be able to live their lives, free of burdensome regulations. He also believes the city government should not be spending taxpayer money on pet projects, nor should they be picking winners and losers in the market through handouts. He aims to protect the rights of the people to live their lives as free individuals and will stand against tax increases at the local level. Dasinger wishes to bring a unique, yet important viewpoint to this race, especially in the current political climate where individual freedoms are being trampled and government spending is at an all-time high.
Dasinger attended Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham, Alabama, where he graduated magna cum laude in May of 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Bible and Theology. He has stated that his training there led him to have a higher sense of the desire for justice in the world.
Ward 5 of Clarksville extends approximately from 101st Division Parkway to Tiny Town Road, and from Fort Campbell Blvd to Preachers Mill Rd. Joey encourages voters to verify their information on their voter registration card, which will include the district in which they live, as well as their polling location.
